Building for families...

...one nail at a time

The goal of Habitat for Humanity is to eliminate poverty housing worldwide by building simple, decent homes.

Dedicated to helping the community, the Fairfield chapter of Habitat for Humanity has been active in rebuilding homes for residents to live in.  The first Habitat home, on West Broadway street, was dedicated in the spring of 1999, with Iowa Governor Tom Vilsack visiting.  A second home is currently being worked on in Fairfield.

These projects by Fairfield residents demonstrate the caring and concern that we have for our fellow community members.

For more information, contact the Fairfield First Christian Church, Fairfield Area Chamber of Commerce, or the Department of Human Services.
